Christmas Goodies {Yummy!}

The other day I posted my recipe for Reindeer Food, because we have to feed those deer right?!  Plus we think it’s pretty scrumptious as well.  I sent a big batch of it today for Kelsies class and the beginning of next week I’ll make more for obvious reasons of course. *smiles*

Since I have been in the kitchen almost daily I thought I’d share a few more recipes we enjoy this time of year.image

I love sausage balls. I make candy at Christmas. Pralines, fudge, peanut brittle and hopefully divinity if it ever stops raining.
